What the students are saying about nutrition and the school murals:

Third grade student from Bell Gardens Elementary:

"I want them to think that I am an artist, and so they could keep on eating fruit and vegetables."

Fourth grade students from Joseph Gascon Elementary:

"My classmates and I are extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been part of such an amazing learning experience.  We learned about painting, nutrition, and best of all we have contributed to a mural that will beautify our school for many, many years." 

"On painting day, I decided to illustrate and paint a banana because it is delicious and loaded with potassium."

"I encourage all students and parents to eat five fruits and vegetables a day and maintain a healthy diet.  This will help your body stay fit and lean......like mine."

Fifth grade students from Greenwood Elementary:

"I  learned that it is really important to eat vegetables and fruits.  I'm getting better at painting since then and I love it."

"I want the mural to encourage them to eat healthy and to try new things."

Fifth grade student from Bell Gardens Elementary:

"To eat more fruits and vegetables but not only one, a variety of fruits and vegetables. So they can be healthy!"

High school students at Vail High School

"I want them (my community) to think that vegetables and fruits are important and they should be eating them on a daily basis."

"I want the people that see the mural to get motivated to eat more fruits and vegetables."
